Michael Noonan comes from Halifax (home of the Piece Hall), West Yorkshire, and has a background in retail, food production and office work. Has had artworks published in literary journals in the US and UK. His drawing, “The Pedestrian Centre,” and his painting, “Fun Girl,” for which he has been awarded certificates, were shown at the CityScapes and Figurative art exhibitions, run by the Light, Space and Time online art gallery in America; and can be seen on their youtube videos. He admires the great surrealist artists like Rene Magritte, Max Ernst, and Chirico; and his particular favourite is Yves Tanguy. He likes the visionary, dreamlike and subversive qualities of their work, and his own artworks have a tendency towards the offbeat and the unusual.
